I think I’m going to have to prod aeon to start posting herself! (▰˘◡˘▰)
Today I’m looking at one of the products that came with my RoseRoseShop order; The Face Shop’s Daily Perfumed Hand Cream. I went and ordered this product in Cherry Blossom because there were waaaaay too many options to choose from, so this looked like a nice light scent. Cute packaging also always helps! ❛ڡ❛
The Face Shop’s Daily Perfumed Hand Cream comes in a plastic wrapped, 30ml tube and is safety sealed (so always be weary when opening a new tube that you’re the one pulling off the silver safety seal!). Not having much experience in product quantities, the packaging was smaller than I expected, but that’s really my own inexperience showing ´･ᴗ･` The package is a great size for a small bag without adding too much weight – if you’re like me, you won’t want to deal with a heavy bag…ever. So this is good!
Always to the benefit of someone like me, who knows absolutely no hangul, the Directions and Ingredient List is also written in English (not that we need instructions for daily hand cream, but hey, it’s nice!).
The ingredient list is as follows:
Water, Shea Butter, Propanediol, Glycerine, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alchohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Alcohol Denat, Prunus Serrulata Flower Extract (this is Cherry Blossom for those wondering (✿´‿`)), Peg-100 Stearate, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Squalane, Polysorbate 60, Butylene Glycol, Beta-Glucan, Ceteareth-20, 12-Hexanediol, Phenoxyethonol, Caprylyl Glycol, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Xanthan Gum, Disodium Edta and Fragrance
The cream is a creamy white colour and quite thick in consistency, but not firm – I quite like it! You only need to use a very small amount to cover both hands.
As you spread the cream, it starts to go a semi-transparent white. The cream spreads very easily and here you start to smell a really light scent of cherry blossom. It’s really nice and fragrant, but thankfully not too strong. It’s a very clearly floral scent and absolutely feminine. So not for those who aren’t a fan of girly scents!
Once fully absorbed into the skin, you can really feel the difference in softness between before and after, but no obvious layer of product on the skin. So you don’t need to worry about using your hands right after application.
Having used the product for only a few days, I can’t say whether it’ll improve the condition of my skin or otherwise but this product doesn’t claim to do anything other than just be a hand cream, so I don’t expect it to. In the end, it’s advertised to be a hand cream and well, that’s exactly what it does.
Small Package, Easily Spread, Light Floral Scent, Cheap
A couple of potentially harmful chemicals (according to the internet…)
For what it is, it’s a good product and I like it. It’s cheap, and it doesn’t claim to really do anything at all other than smell nice. If you’re after a hand cream that actually has a purpose, I wouldn’t go for this. But if you’re after a product where your hands do feel softer (and smell nice!) and that’s about it, this is a decent enough product for a couple of dollars.
